Program Cost

Our fellowship programs are priced based on the time, effort, and knowledge it takes to curate meaningful programs. We are fortunate to have the support of Suncor Energy Foundation to underwrite some of Women In Power’s programming costs. 

For everyone else who is interested in the program but unable to afford it, we offer an additional option of sliding scale scholarship. We follow the “green bottle framework” originally created by Alex J. Cunningfolk with additions from Britt Hawthorne. You can read more about their work here

The true cost of our work is represented by the first bottle. Through the second and third bottle we acknowledge that financial hardships may be a barrier for some to access the programs offered by Women In Power and thus, we will make accommodations to ensure that programs are available to all that are interested.

We strongly believe knowledge should be readily and easily accessible to all that want it and thus will work with you to ensure accessibility and affordability. 

* Basic Needs include food, housing, health care, and transportation.
** Expendable Income might mean you are able to buy coffee or tea at a shop, go to the movies or a concert, buy new clothes, books, and similar items each month, etc. 

The three bottles represent financial privilege
